    I think you have a good shot in small claims court since you have photos, a detailed invoice, and a contract. It sounds like she didn’t uphoold her end of the bargain and failed to do her research.

    This is utterly disgusting. I have never seen such a poor floral job in my life. 

    Furthermore, you aren’t supposed to just use floral foam as a support, but to help preserve the flowers by placing the cut end of the stem in it, not completely through it.

    oh. my. god.  that is a disaster.  I think you should pursue something.  Also post reviews online, absolutely everywhere.  I know I rely a lot on the written reviews of vendors a lot and if I saw this I would run in the other direction.  I am so, so, so sorry this happened to you!

    is this the work of a professional florist?  the cylinder thing she used looks terrible.  did she even use floral tape or wire on the bouts.  the centerpieces looks like she pulled over on the side of the road and yanked some field flowers and put them in the jar.  (actually the flowers look like the filler flower bunches i’ve seen at grocery stores.) she used very cheap filler flowers.  i see hypericum berries, alstromeria, maybe snapdragons, daisies, various mums, and a bunch of filler.   this requires no skill at all.  i’m sorry to criticize the flowers because i know that this was your wedding and you don’t get a do over.  if it were me, i would take her to court for more than what you paid her because of the emotional damage.
